The Italian Cultural Institute, NYU Washington, DC, and N.I.C.E. (New Italian Cinema Events) present a screening of Figli della Notte (Children of the Night).
Giulio, a seventeen-year-old from a well-to-do family, is sent to a boarding school. In this isolated place in the Alps, where iron-clad rules limit all contact with the outside, he makes friends with Edoardo, who is rather odd. Their friendship is sealed by frequent escapes at night, when the surveillance of the students seems to lapse.
